Eagles of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes is backtracking on comments he made earlier this week suggesting that security at Paris’ Bataclan theater may have been in on the attacks that killed 89 people during the band’s show on November 13, calling them “absurd accusations.”

On Wednesday, Hughes told Fox Business Network that before the show, he found out that “six or so” security guards failed to show up that night. “It seems rather obvious that they had a reason not to show up,” he said.

The venue responded Thursday calling his statements not only defamatory, but “insane.”
